About Patricia

My name is Patricia ! I work with individuals with severe mental disabilities as a Direct Support Professional. I am looking for a new job closer to my new home. I am First Aid, CPR, and MAP Certified. I also have a long list of other certifications I can provide for you. The individuals I work with have serious medical issues such as seizures, hip dysplasia, spinal stenosis and other diagnoses such as Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome, and Autism. I also have experience with Alzheimer's. I assist with all activities of daily life such as showering, toileting, grooming, cooking, feeding, and also having fun! Pretty much anything you need to do to live. Another thing that I really enjoy doing with my individuals is accompanying them to doctors appointments. I love to expand my knowledge and learn new treatments and ways I can help so my individuals can live the most joyful life they can. Thank you for your time and consideration!

I started caring for people even before I completed my CNA certification. I've always had a passion to help people in need and to be a companion to people that don't have anyone else. I am very passionate about what I do because I love what I do. I am very proud of the education that I continue to pursue. My ultimate goal is to become a nurse. The thing I enjoy the most about this job is the different people I get to care for. I've learned a lot from my clients ,and I know that they could be completely comfortable with me.
